Such an itch!

Hi, I’m a cute little California sea lion living in ZOOM Erlebniswelt in Gelsenkirchen, Germany. I’m a happy little thing and I’m ready to lie down and relax with my best friend and her mum. There is only one problem. I have an itch!

Oh how I’d like to lie down like my friend and relax. I’m a bit jealous now.

Sea lions are very good at relaxing and enjoying the sun!

I could be dreaming about being strong and proud like my father …

or about swimming like a big and strong sea lion.

I could also dream about being a beautiful and cute lady like my auntie.

But I’m still having that stupid itch. I’ll try some more scratching. I’m not giving up that easily 🙂

You looked at photo’s taken in ZOOM Erlebniswelt in Gelsenkirchen. I took most of them yesterday during a very nice visit there. Some of them are from my first visit to that zoo in June 2016. I hope you’ll like them.

The little sea lion was really itchy. That was probably the result of the shedding. Both youngsters had partly lost their fur and were given a new coat.
